    Everything

    Nothing

  • 6.2

    Had to complaint to get room cleaned. Did not like men drinking at the entrance of the hotel.

  • 7.8

    "the front desk staff was excellent! very helpful with directions, and taking care of my several requests.

    Halls were not cleaned often (candy wrappers on floor several days, toothpick in the elevator several days, a red punch (?) spill on the carpet was still there when I left several days later. A strong chemical odor permiated to my room (3rd floor) and down to the lobby and breakfast room. I asked if they just had a pest control treatment and they said no, they were trying to remove paint from the elevator. I was checking out that morning, but would have left anyway, the odor was that offensive! No frig or microwave and only a so so breakfast.

  • 9.6

    Very friendly and accommodating staff.

  • 10.0

    The staff was very friendly. They even called up to our rooms to make sure everything was ok. Breakfast was great and the beds were comfortable. I would stay again.

  • 6.2

    Staff

    Could of stayed in a hotel $80 in stead of $140 didn't see any different

  • 9.6

    Room was spacious and quiet.

    Breakfast area very cramped and difficult to find anywhere to sit. Food was spilled and no attempt made to clean it up.

  • 7.8

    Space, cleanliness and grandkids loved the pool.

    The toilet paper and sound of the air conditioner.

  • 9.2

    Everything was clean and very comfortable. However, most rooms that you pay as much as we did you will have either a refrigerator or micro-wave or both.

  • 9.2

    We arrived early in the day so the kids could enjoy the pool...they loved it! The hotel was clean and staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were concerned about the interstate noise since our room was facing it, but it wasn't an issue.

    All good!

  • 8.2

    It was a great stay and breakfast next morning was better than expected!

    Only thing was that my daughter ended up with bites all over her legs that weren't there the day before. We aren't sure where they came from except maybe had an allergic reaction to detergent!

  • 8.8

    The staff was amazing. Very helpful.

    Wish you had some smoking rooms. And the pillows were very uncomferable.

  • 5.8

    l liked seeing all the kids who were competing in the Olympics at Drake University

    I wish there had been a safe in the room
